  • 4 tea bags
  • 20g pack mint



    There are several types of mint, each with its own subtle difference in flavour and appearance.…

  • 100g caster sugar
  • juice 2 large oranges, plus slices to serve



    One of the best-known citrus fruits, oranges aren't necessarily orange - some varieties are…

  • juice 2 lemons, plus slices to serve



    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  • 400ml Pimm's No 1
  • a few sliced strawberries and plenty of ice, to serve



    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…


  1. Put the tea bags and half the mint into a large jug, then pour over 1.2 litres boiling water from the kettle. Leave to infuse for 10 mins, then remove the bags and stir in the sugar. Once cool, remove the mint, add the orange juice, lemon juice and Pimm’s, and chill thoroughly. Can be made up to a day ahead.

  2. Serve over plenty of ice, with slices of orange, lemon and strawberry, and remaining mint sprigs.

I used green tea and it made a light and refreshing drink. Seems quite a lot of sugar so will try with less next time.

What tea do we use?

Such a good idea - I love iced tea and can't stand fizzy drinks so it's perfect

Great recipe, good balance of flavours. Can you update the timing though because it says "Ready in 10 minutes," which is certainly not true!

absolutely delicious. I like Pimms but find mix with Lemonade sometimes too sweet, this is not too sweet and very refreshing.

What is Pimm's No 1, and is there any alternative? Thanks.

goodfoodteam's picture

Pimm’s No 1 is an alcoholic drink, the traditional drink of Wimbledon, and summer garden parties created in the 1800s by James Pimm. It is a blend of dry gin, liqueur, fruit juices and spice and is usually served over ice with lemonade or ginger ale. If you are not looking for an alcoholic drink you could add the juice of an extra orange and lemon then top up with soda water or lemonade.
